This event has ended.

The 2012 class of the FIT Art Market: Principles and Practices graduate program presents exhibition "No Other Medicine". Relying on hope and subtle humor, eight artists address the mounting tensions and contradictions of our time. Shakespeare’s observation, “the miserable have no other medicine but only hope,” speaks to how we face an uncertain future.

Priscila De Carvalho utilizes urban imagery from her Brazilian background and infuses it with intense color and maze-like juxtapositions to convey sociopolitical commentary and concerns about urban decay.

In Lisa Dahl’s work, the recurring motif of the suburban home questions the traditional values and implications of the American Dream.

Susan Graham’s porcelain and sugar sculptures seek to reconcile the evolving tensions between technology and nature.

Max Greis combines elements from National Geographic with his own painting to create intricate, otherworldly landscapes which depict a cinematic take on the modern condition.

Susan Hamburger’s panels marry historical French decoration with a critique of frivolous culture, narcissism, and greed.

Hong Seon Jang’s sculptures manipulate common objects and recycled materials into likenesses of natural forms that mimic the fundamental forces of survival and growth.

Lori Nix photographs meticulously hand-built scenes of a metropolis in decay after an unspecified disaster. Having long outlived human inhabitants, nature takes over the cultural and social spaces built by man.

Yuken Teruya’s work reflects the rebirth and growth that must follow a disaster. Altering newspapers reporting on the 2011 Japanese tsunami, Teruya crafts a personal and poetic reflection on the event, man, and nature.
